Foreword

This document (prEN 15254-2:2005) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 127 "Fire safety in

buildings", the secretariat of which is held by BSI.
This document is currently submitted to the CEN Enquiry.

1 Scope

(1) This part provides guidance, and where appropriate defines procedures, for variations of certain

parameters and factors with the design of internal and external non-loadbearing walls and made of clay units,

calcium silicate units, aggregate concrete units, autoclaved aerated concrete units and gypsum blocks with

different types of mortar that have been tested in accordance with EN 1364-1.
(2) Manufactured stone masonry units according to EN 771-5 are not covered.

3 Definitions

(1) For the purpose of this part the definitions given in EN 15254-1 and EN 1996-1-2, together with the

following, apply:
3.1
(2) unit grouping
is defined in EN 1996-1-1
3.2
(3) unfilled perpend joints

are vertical plain joints or joints with tongue and groove, not filled with mortar or adhesive

prEN 15254-2:2005 (E)
4 General principles
4.1 General
(1) The fire behaviour of masonry mainly depends on:

 the masonry unit material - clay, calcium silicate, autoclaved aerated concrete, dense/lightweight

aggregate concrete or gypsum;

 the type of unit - solid or hollow (type of holes, percentage and direction of holes), shell and web

thickness;
 the dimensions of units, especially the height;
 the gross density of units;
 the strength of units;
 the type of mortar - general purpose, thin layer or lightweight mortar;

 the type of perpend joint – filled or unfilled perpend joint, especially for unplastered walls;

 the use of finishes;
 the geometrical slenderness of the wall.as defined in EN 1996-1-1;
 the length of the wall between vertical stiffeners.

(2) For the determination of values by consideration of test results, the interpretation of any existing fire test

results has to be based on the requirements for the relevant test method from EN 1363-1, EN 1363-2 and

EN 1364-1. For the evaluation of historic test data, differences between the test methods, in particular, fixed

ends, free ends or one fixed end and one partly free end with respect to both directions (horizontal and

vertical) have to be considered.

(3) Extrapolations are only possible within the same type of material – e.g. tests on clay unit masonry with

units according to EN 771-1 can only be used for extrapolations for clay unit masonry.

(4) To establish the extended application, the rules given in chapter 5 shall be followed for each of the given

parameters.
